The IAPF represents your interests at European level directly and through its membership of PensionsEurope. This allows us to track and assess legislation as it is being prepared at European level and feed into the process to ensure pension provision isn’t negatively impacted.
Among the many issues being dealt with by PensionsEurope are the implementation of the IORP II Directive, the ECB’s plans to gather data on pension schemes, the impact of Brexit, EIOPA’s work on a pan-European DC Framework, EMIR, Fintech Consultation, the EU’s Capital Markets Union and Financial Transaction Tax. PensionsEurope also engages extensively with the European institutions such as the Parliament, Commission and EIOPA.
Jerry Moriarty is Vice Chairman on the Board of PensionsEurope and also chairs the DC Committee and Brexit Working Group. PensionsEurope represents the various national associations of pension funds and similar institutions for workplace pension provision. It affiliates associations in 16 EU member states and 5 other European countries, totalling 28 Member Associations.
The occupational pension plans of about 110 million EU citizens are covered by PensionsEurope Members. Through its Member Associations, PensionsEurope represents an estimated €4 trillion in assets, managed for future workplace pension payments.
